Fictions of Emancipation: Collaborations With and Against the Law
Esther Gabara is the E. Blake Byrne Associate Professor of Romance Studies, and art, art history, and visual studies at Duke University. Her book, Errant Modernism: The Ethos of Photography in Mexico and Brazil (Duke University Press, 2008), elaborated a theory of Latin American modernist errancy at the intersection of ethics and aesthetics. She is currently involved in two book-length research projects: one develops the concept of “non-literary fiction” as a political and aesthetic operation in contemporary Latin American art and visual culture; the other examines the current form of coloniality between Spain and Latin America, as it is generated in museums, galleries, and art fairs, as well as immigration legislation and transnational financial relationships.
